Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister
At the meal we sit together:
Salve tibi! I must hear
Wise talk of the kind of weather,
Sort of season, time of year (lines 9-12)
What's the Latin name for "parsley"?
What's the Greek name for Swine's Snout? (lines 15-16)
Oh, those melons? If he's able
We're to have a feast! so nice!
One goes to the Abbot's table,
All of us get each a slice. (lines 41-44)
